About Us

As a family, we have been running holiday properties since 2006 when we developed our first property Lower Hedge Farm. Since then we have renovated a further 3 properties (Woodlands Farmhouse, Apple Cottage & Swallow's Orchard) along with our Sedum Spa facilities. The other properties you will find on this website are also all entirely managed by us from arranging your booking, cleaning & house presentation through to being the point of contact for your stay. This means that we can guarantee you will be well looked after and ultimately you will have a fantastic weekend. 

As well as the beautiful properties you will find here, we can also help arrange some activities to add another dimension to your weekend; this could be private dining with our talented chefs, Cocktail making classes with remarkable mixologists or maybe a cheeky butler to brighten up your day! 

The Sophisticated Hen forms part of our wider business 'Woodlands Retreats' and you can also find further information about the properties on our sister website here or please do contact us if you have any queries at all.

We do hope you find something of interest... We'll provide the venue and activities, you provide the characters, the laughter and simply have a great time.
